A discussion on the same old policy of the Republican response to poor ratings is to make a 'Conract with America'. This is moot and just is a promise to do the same things they have always done. Tax the poor and give to the rich and add a few right-wing policies. Their new 'pledge' is discussed at length with obscene costs and hidden or unknown entities, which in many respects, resembles what is commonly called a 'scam'. Interesting conversation. Leading the talk is LYNWOOD BARTLEY, and...

Today it is only DR. RON KRAMER and DR. DON COONEY as they talk about the Voodoo Economics of the Republican eras of Reagan and Bush and the disasterous inevitability this course would take. David Stockman was the one who authored this type of economics and who is now repudiating his idea as unworkable. This is what lead to the downfall of Wall Street and the bank failures of 2009 and 10 and gave rise to the Barny Madolffs and their scams. And lest we forget, it was G. W. Bush who was willing...

This is evident from the town hall meetings to the halls of congress. We were witness to their pettiness when Senator Joe Wilson cried out "you Lie' during a national address.

We cover the morality of torture and the loss of the nations soul. Torture was outlawed by a federal law in 1996 and what the Bush lawers did to 'bend' the laws to make them seem lawful.

By now, everyone knows that the Republicans have no intention of reaching across the aisle to work in a non-partisan way. They are there only to obstruct and keep the money flowing to their rich buddies and not to help the average person.

A happy panel assembles to discuss the election results. Unfortunately, our own Don Cooney did not advance to the House. The panel consists of LYNWOOD BARTLEY, Host, LEIGH A. FORD, PhD, DR. RON KRAMER and DON COONEY all faculty of Western Michigan University. With the landslide victory of the Democrats, the people put forth a mandate to Barak Obama, and at the same time repudiated the Republican Party, who will have to re-invent themselves. No matter what, this election was Historic no matter...

What has this present administration really done to America? We have lost some of our rights, we went to war by way of lies, we have been devestated by a Hurricane with little help from the Federal Government, our jobs have been sucked from us and sent abroad, the wealthy have just about drained our treasury. It is time for a drastic change in America when we bail out wealthy wall street fat cats. In all actuality it is just another Tax, only a big tax raise on the people who can least afford...

Don Cooney is running for Michigan's 6th district congressional seat against incumbant Fred Upton. It is important to know the differences, but the gap is so vastly different, Don needs to get his views out. Upton has voted 97% of the time with the failed Bush Administration policies. Two videos were made one on National Issues and one on Local Issues (Kalamazoo, MI). Both will be available here.

Lynwood Bartley is joined with Dr. Ron Kramer and Dr. Don Cooney to discuss the current contest of the Democratic presidential hopefuls, Hillary and Obama. Questions asked are Where are they getting their money and who will they be beholden to if elected. Taking as a given that McCain is the Republican candidate, we must see who will stack up better against the Republicans. Most of all, who is behind the candidates? Questions that should be answered before the election.
